How  To Achieve Glass Skin

How To Achieve Glass Skin

Skin Exfoliation is important

The “glass skin” trend has taken the beauty world by storm. This dewy, flawless look is attained by using special skin care techniques that can provide you with an ethereal complexion. While the results may appear effortless, there is an art to achieving luminous glass skin.

What is glass skin?

Glass skin is a term used to describe the look of an incandescent complexion. It’s characterized by a lit-from-within dewy finish, with few visible pores or blemishes. The aim is to have skin that appears almost glass-like — a smooth finish and an even tone.

The term “glass skin” was originally coined by Korean beauty influencers, but the trend has spread across the world. Many people use this look to create a more youthful appearance, while others simply revel in the beauty of a lustrous complexion.

Achieving glass skin

Achieving glass skin requires a multidimensional approach to skincare. It takes a combination of consistent habits and high-quality products to achieve the desired result.

1. Double cleansing

Double cleansing is the practice of using an oil-based cleanser followed by a cream or foam cleanser. The oil-based cleanser breaks down makeup and other cosmetic products, while the creamy formula removes dirt and oil. This ensures that your skin is thoroughly clean and ready to absorb other glass skin products.

2. Exfoliating

Exfoliating helps to remove any dead skin cells that can make the complexion look dull and lifeless. The best way to exfoliate is through at-home enzyme peels, which use natural enzymes and acids to dissolve the bonds between dead skin cells.

3. Toning

Using a toner after cleansing helps to provide an even layer of hydration across the face. A toner also helps to restore your skin’s pH balance and can act as a protective barrier against harsh environmental factors.

4. Serum

Serums are more concentrated formulas with active ingredients that target specific skin concerns. Choose a serum that is tailored to your individual needs, such as one to reduce blemishes or brighten the skin’s tone.

5. Moisturizing

A lightweight moisturizer is essential to maintain the hydration achieved through other skincare steps. Apply a pea-sized amount to the face each morning and night to ensure that the skin is kept nourished throughout the day.

6. Eye cream

Glass skin requires an extra focus on the eye area. Apply an under-eye cream to reduce puffiness and diminish dark circles for a fresh, youthful look.

Using R+F Multi-Acid Enzyme Peel™ to achieve glass skin

One of the products that can help you reach glass skin perfection is the R+F Multi-Acid Enzyme Peel. This at-home enzyme peel is an excellent way to gently exfoliate the skin as part of your regular glass skin routine.

Benefits of applying an enzyme peel to your skin

The R+F Multi-Acid Enzyme Peel offers tone-evening, brilliance-boosting, and pore-minimizing benefits — all key elements of achieving the glass skin look. It helps to remove dead skin cells and fade the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. This diminishes the dullness that can get in the way of a radiant complexion.

Ingredients of our glass skin serum

Our enzyme peel acts as a glass skin serum due to its high-quality ingredients, which include our ProAcid Enzyme Complex, bakuchiol, niacinamide, and licorice root essence. The ProAcid Enzyme Complex™ accelerates exfoliation, while bakuchiol and niacinamide help to brighten the skin tone. Finally, licorice root essence helps to soothe the skin for a comfortable finish.

Diet and lifestyle tips for glass skin

Implementing a glass skincare routine is just one part of achieving the desired results. For lasting luminous skin, certain lifestyle changes are also recommended.

Eating a balanced diet that’s rich in antioxidants and vitamins can help to feed the skin from within. Regular exercise also helps, as it increases circulation and brings oxygen-rich blood to the face.

Be sure to drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. Also, try to reduce stress levels as much as possible to help keep breakouts at bay. Additionally, make sure to get plenty of rest and stay out of the sun to keep your skin looking its best.

Frequently asked questions about glass skin

Since there are so many questions surrounding glass skin, we’ve compiled a list of the most commonly asked ones to help you start on your glass skin journey.

Can anyone achieve glass skin, regardless of skin type?

Yes! With a tailored routine that suits your skin type and the right lifestyle approach, anyone can achieve the glass skin look. However, no two people will have the same results, so try not to compare yourself to others. Instead, focus on achieving your own version of glass skin.

Is glass skin suitable for all age groups?

Of course, there are reasonable limits to what can be achieved with glass skin. For example, it cannot turn back the clock and erase wrinkles. However, creating a luminous complexion can help to create a more youthful appearance. So, while age is not a limiting factor for achieving glass skin, it’s worth keeping in mind that the results may vary depending on your age.

How long does it take to see results with a glass skin routine?

Generally, it takes at least four to six weeks to start seeing results from a glass skin routine. Because it takes time to build up the hydration, nourishment, and protection that your skin needs for a glassy complexion, patience is key.

How can I maintain my glass skin once I achieve it?

To maintain your glass skin once you’ve achieved it, continue with your regular routine, and maintain your positive lifestyle habits.

Achieving glass skin is a process that requires diligence, patience, and consistency. But by implementing the best glass skin products and lifestyle habits into your routine, you can achieve the dewy look you’ve always wanted soon enough.

Anti-Aging Tips for Your Whole Body

Anti-Aging Tips for Your Whole Body

Skin Exfoliation is important
Anti Age Your Body

Did you forget about it? The skin below the chin?

If so, you’re not alone. Every morning we check our face in the mirror, admiring our reflection as we brush our teeth and apply skincare. But many of us overlook our bodies; it doesn’t help that many mirrors are mounted at a height to focus on the face.

Our body is about 92% of our skin’s real estate — this is living property consistently reflecting our health, lifestyle choices, and internal and external experiences. It’s essential to pay attention to and care for the skin above and below the chin all year round. Let’s examine some “skinformation” to help us achieve healthier skin from head to toe.

Tip of the Iceberg Phenomena:
The good and bad news is that 80% of aging is up to you. The tip of the iceberg — our face — is out 365 days a year in all kinds of weather and sun exposure so you’d think it would look older, with lines, wrinkles, discoloration and sagging, than the rest of our body. But why doesn’t it? With care, our faces can be next to flawless: even-toned, smooth, wrinkle-free. We exfoliate, moisturize, mask, peel, protect, support, and we use tools to care for our face but usually not past the jawline. The lower part of the iceberg — our body — is undercover and misses the same treatments so eventually skin can look old, revealing your age.

Exfoliation from head to toe is key to radiant, glowing skin as we age. Full face and body exfoliation encourages younger, more vibrant cells to the surface. Our cellular renewal slows down 50% over the years, and dead skin cells pile up. You’ll see dry, dull, ashy skin that can be easily released with an exfoliating product. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and allows topical product application to get to the true surface of the skin.

Tip: Avoid over-scrubbing for a quick result, especially if you’ve been working out, sweating, and want to destroy acne blemishes — you could get a serious acne flare-up. The skin needs to get used to exfoliation, so begin two to three times a week and increase as tolerated to five days a week. How do you know if you’ve overworked your skin? It will look red, and shiny, and feel sensitive or sting.

Micro-Dermabrasion Paste can be used on the face and body to exfoliate away dead skin cells for smoother, vibrant-looking skin after just one use. This sugar and salt-based scrub gently buffs away dull skin cells and dry, flaky skin. If concerned about exfoliation, massage onto damp skin to melt the salt and sugar crystals.

After removing dead skin cells from your face and body, it’s essential to drench your skin with hydration. Active Hydration Body Replenish delivers a luxurious layer of all-over hydration. Get younger-looking, younger-acting skin with our breakthrough body moisturizer that instantly and continuously hydrates. You’ll see less crepey skin and more plump, luminous, bouncy, and radiant-looking skin. You can improve your skin — it is not too late, and your body will thank you.

To help reduce skin aging and discoloration, apply sunscreen daily before you go outdoors. We often forget about skin under the chin that is exposed to the sun when we’re on a walk or just out and about, but it’s equally as prone to sun damage as the face. The best skin that I’ve ever seen in the dermatologist’s office was from a patient that applied sunscreen every morning on her entire body after a bath or shower. Although she was prone to freckles, they were extremely faint, and her skin was baby smooth even though she was over 50. Remember that there is no fountain of youth, but sun protection products are the next best thing.

Be picky. When it comes to sunscreen, look for one with SPF 30 or more of a broad-spectrum formulation and one that is water-resistant. Essentials Face + Body Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is a great option for full-body and long-wearing protection for an active lifestyle. Our formula offers up to 80 minutes of water and sweat resistance for activities like sports, outdoor recreation, and keeping up with the kids. The lightweight, non-sticky formula is excellent for the whole family and won’t cause breakouts.

Get even. Clothing straps move, backs are hard to reach, and sunscreen can only blend so far. So, do your best to apply an even amount over the skin. Tip: Apply the initial coat on bare skin. After putting on your clothing items, layer a second coat after 15 minutes. Finally, make sure you do not skimp on the amount of product — a teaspoon for the face and an ounce for the body, layered over time.

Re-apply. A very important sun protection step is re-application. Although we’d like it to be as easy as one and done, it isn’t. The basic rule is to re-apply sunscreen every 2-2.5 hours, and after swimming and sweating.

Dark spots be gone. Using skin brighteners to even your skin tone can deliver even, radiant skin. Don’t expect to go back in the sun and get an even tan now that your spots and patches are history. Unfortunately, skin has a memory of your past skin habits and assaults. Freckles and marks can pop up right back in the same places. This is because our melanocytes, or pigment cells, are stimulated to protect the skin as its main job is to create umbrellas of color to protect the skin below from harmful UV rays. People with more pigment have a coat of protection so they burn less and usually tan evenly. Fair individuals have less pigmented cells, so they have less protection. The few cells bring less protection causing their skin to burn more easily and the pigment is more scattered. Over time, these pigment cells reproduce but look clumped together. The bottom line, avoid the sun and wear sunscreen.

Fake it. Do you want the best of both worlds — sun-kissed skin without the damage? Get summer color 365 days a year using a faux tan product. Re-apply as needed once or twice a week and more frequently to the face as it is usually cleansed twice daily. Remember to use your sunscreen every day as directed because tinted skin is not sun protection. Essentials Foaming Sunless Tan gives even, natural-looking color with RF-Dcell Technology featuring Narcissus Bulb Extract to extend the life of your sunless glow.

I hope you’ve now been inspired to love and care for your skin from head to toe all year long!

Benefits of Stacking Your Skincare Habits

Benefits of Stacking Your Skincare Habits

Skin Exfoliation is important

Learn how stacking your habits can improve your daily routines with Kayla Kozan, Founder of Peak Wellness in Canada.

When it comes to skincare, you probably already know that consistency is key to your success. Achieving your skincare goals means sticking with a consistent routine in order to yield the best results. In fact, creating a routine is the best way to ensure your morning and nighttime skincare regimens become an integral part of your day.

Routines are essentially habits that are implemented in groups. Have you heard of habit stacking? For this blog post, we caught up with Founder of Peak Wellness in Canada, Kayla Kozan, to learn about what the term means, how to stack your habits, the benefits of stacking your skincare habits, the importance of a daily skincare routine, and of course, self-care rituals.

So: What Is Habit Stacking? 

“Habit stacking is the process of ‘stacking’ a new, desirable habit on top of an existing one,” Kozan explains. So instead of starting from scratch, you’re simply modifying a practice you already do in your morning or evening routine. What’s great about that is that this strategy is proven to increase the likelihood of you sticking to your new routine. Crafting your personal lifestyle and wellness regimen is all about habit stacking—at least in the beginning.

Creating Your Custom Skincare Routine 

Because we all had a little more time on our hands since the pandemic, we’ve allotted a little more time to our skincare regimens. Why is that? Well, it’s easier to stick with a four- or five-step routine when there are fewer late nights, less plans in general, and no coming home after a night of a few drinks. In other words, with nowhere to go and no one to see (for the most part), there was little temptation to skip the entire enterprise of doing an evening skincare routine. What’s more, not having to commute in the morning (for many of us), meant we had more time to do that extra skincare step. Whether that additional step was something as simple as applying REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream or taking the time to indulge in a 15-minute mask, not feeling rushed gave us a little more time to indulge in the self care that is a complete skincare routine.

To help you further customize your skincare routine, try the newly reformulated Rodan + Fields Redefine Regimen, which allows you to choose your favorite textures. You can select products based on your own unique preference for Step 1 and Step 3 for a.m. and p.m. moisturizers, respectively. In other words? You can choose your own hydration adventure. Want a rich, thick cream during the day? We’ve got you covered. Prefer a thinner, lighter lotion for evening? Go for it.

Keep it Simple

When it comes to creating a new habit, Kozan notes that “if a habit feels effortless, it will fit perfectly into your day, without requiring brain power or willpower.” With regard to skincare, Kozan says that it’s “far more effective to maintain your simple skincare ritual seven days in a row, than to do an extensive multi-step routine once a week.” The bottom line? Bespoke skincare routines have thrived since COVID became a reality — and they will be a habit that sticks long after the pandemic. Taking a little extra care of our skin is something we’re all reaping the benefits of — and after a year of seeing our skin up close and personal on video calls, it makes sense that we’d continue to make the time for a robust routine.

Multi-Med Therapy Prioritizes Consistency

Multi-Med Therapy is the approach to skincare on which Rodan + Fields is built— and it’s designed to make consistency easy. “Even the bottles are numbered to make your routine effortless,” Kozan points out. “The simplicity of their Regimens take the guesswork out of your skincare routine.”

The Benefits of Stacking Your Habits

Batching a few habits together gives you a sense that you’re sort of “on autopilot.” These easy associations make a mindless, routine maintenance activity feel a little less rote. “A great example of a base habit is brushing your teeth,” Kozan says.  “Since you already brush your teeth twice a day, you have two opportunities per day to add on to that habit,” she adds. She recommends stacking your skincare routine on top of brushing your teeth for an effortless ritual. “Begin step one of your skincare routine after brushing your teeth in the morning and begin your evening skincare routine right after brushing your teeth at night,” she advises. Before you know it, you’ve habit stacked.

Habits Are The Secret To Wellness

After you’ve stuck with a consistent self-care and skincare routine for a few months, it becomes easy. These routines and rituals are not just a trend, they also help you ensure that you’re taking care of your mind, body — and skin.

Apply Your Skincare Routine in the Best Order

Apply Your Skincare Routine in the Best Order

Skin Exfoliation is important

Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated, though it’s easy to see how it can be confusing to someone just making her entrance into the world of its lotions and potions. Simply put, skincare is a routine you apply consistently, in the morning and at night.

The order of events, however, is important. We want to get the most out of our skincare products. Our regimen is much more effective when we apply products in the order they were designed to be used and follow some simple rules. Here’s why the order of application matters—and how it can impact your skincare goals.

The Right Order for a Skin Care Routine

There are so many approaches to skincare. From 10-step applications to the simplest, most essential 3 steps of cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Your skincare routine can range from basic to broad. Our Multi-Med Therapy approach is at the core of all Rodan + Fields’ skincare Regimens and we love it because it takes the guesswork out of skincare. The fact is, no single ingredient can effectively address a complex skin concern.

Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields created the Multi-Med Therapy approach as a means to control a particular skin concern, like acne, by creating a system with a focus on prevention, as opposed to treating individual pimples. From Dr. Katie Rodan’s and Dr. Kathy Fields’ years of research, they saw that it takes the right ingredients, in the right product formulations, used in the right order, to visibly improve skin. Each Regimen is backed by this Multi-Med Therapy approach in order to effectively address an individual’s skin concerns.

How to Create a Skincare Routine

When it comes to customizing your own skincare routine, these are the steps—in the right order—to follow both morning and night to achieve your desired visible results.

Step 1: Facial Cleanser

A facial cleanser is important for you to use every morning and evening to remove makeup, dirt, excess sebum and oil. Your cleanser of choice can also gently exfoliate to help slough off dead skin cells. This step must come first because your skin needs to be clean and free from makeup and debris before applying products on top—so they can do their job to the fullest. In other words, cleansing your skin prepares it to absorb the ingredients coming next in your skincare routine. You wouldn’t mop your floor without sweeping it first, right? This step is similar to that.

Step 2: Toner

Toner helps with softening your skin and enabling better penetration for the ingredients that follow in the next step. Toners also serve to cleanse your pores and keep them free from debris. Toners are often formulated with acids that help promote natural cell turnover to achieve this. They also help minimize the look of pores and even out the appearance of your skin tone. If you apply toner to uncleansed skin, the toner will not be able to work as effectively.

Step 3: Eye Cream

Hydrating and moisturizing this area is key. You want to use an eye cream like Redefine Multi-Function Eye Cream, which is specifically designed for the under-eye area so as not to cause any irritation. Applying an eye cream before any serums or moisturizers also helps to protect the delicate skin around the eyes. 

Step 4: Face Serum

Serums contain the most valuable and desired ingredients, often with a higher concentration. It’s important to apply your serum before your moisturizer so that your skin can absorb these active ingredients. Whether your serum offers Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid/hydration or Retinol, you don’t want to skip this step.

Step 5: Moisturizer, Lotion or Night Cream

Your moisturizer, whether you choose a cream or lotion, helps provide anti-aging benefits, in addition to skin-restoring moisturization. Moisturizers and night creams also serve to maintain the health of your skin barrier. Some products, like Redefine Triple Defense Lotion Broad Spectrum 30, also contain SPF in addition to their skin-moisturizing benefits, making them perfect for your AM routine.

Step 6: SPF

This step is only for your morning routine; skip it at nighttime. Always apply sunscreens as the last layer to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays. You’ll need to reapply your SPF throughout the day as necessary according to FDA guidelines.

Incorporate as Needed: Face Masks

Face masks are great for those times when you want to give your skin a little extra self-care. Whether you’re doing an at-home facial or indulging on a Sunday while you catch up on a show you’re bingeing, masks serve as extra care for your secondary skin concern.

For example, when you use anti-aging skincare but you occasionally suffer from acne, you will want to use an acne-targeting face mask each week.

How often should you apply your masks? Aim for 2-3 times per week, more often for hydrating ones if your skin is very dry or dehydrated. You can apply your masks in the morning or evening after you cleanse your skin. Don’t forget to continue with the rest of your routine after —toner, serum, moisturizer, etc. If you want to do a mid-day mask, apply your moisturizer after removing your face mask for best results. You don’t want to leave your skin bare post-treatment.

How to Even Skin Tone on Your Face

How to Even Skin Tone on Your Face

How to even your skin tone

If you suffer from uneven skin tone, rest assured that you’re not alone. “Uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation is often characterized by skin discoloration and is a result of an overproduction of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin and hair color,” explains cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Michele Green. “This overproduction of melanin often occurs unevenly which results in dark spots and patches.”

While common—a form of hyperpigmentation called melasma impacts approximately five million people in the United States and has a prevalence rate of 40% in some populations—anyone who has ever dealt with this issue has probably wondered how to get even the skin tone on their face. Here’s everything you need to know.

What Causes An Uneven Skin Tone?

There are many factors that contribute to uneven skin tone, according to Dr. Green. These include:


According to Dr. Green, hormonal fluctuations can cause an increased risk of hyperpigmentation, especially in the form of melasma. “Many individuals may experience this while taking oral contraceptives or during pregnancy,” she notes.


For some people, an uneven skin tone is as simple as a genetic predisposition. “Individuals are more prone to uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation based on their family history,” Dr Green says. “For example, there is a strong hereditary component to the hyperpigmentation disorder melasma with half of the patients reporting a positive family history.”

Skin Tone

The tone of your skin might make you more likely to develop hyperpigmentation. “Individuals with darker brown skin are more likely to develop an uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation since they naturally have more melanin,” Dr. Green says.

Laser Damage

Sometimes, a dermatologist or other skin expert might use a laser treatment that isn’t suited to your skin, which can lead to uneven skin tone. “If laser treatment is used on a skin tone that it is not well suited for, it can result in skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation,” Dr. Green says. “This is often because the energy or heat of the laser is too high for a particular skin tone and your body reacts by increasing melanin production.”

Steps to Even Your Facial Skin Tone

What can I do to brighten my face? How can I fix discoloration on my face? How can I prevent uneven skin tone? Dr. Green shares some answers to these questions and steps you can take to help even out skin tone:

Step 1: Start using sunscreen

Before thinking about the steps you should take to even out your facial tone, start by using sunscreen to prevent further damage. “Always use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 and above daily and to reapply every two hours,” Dr. Green says.

Step 2: Use a vitamin C serum

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that inhibits melanin synthesis by downregulating the activity of the enzyme tyrosinase, Dr. Green says. “This will help fade hyperpigmentation that may appear as sunspots, age spots, and melasma.”

Step 3: Try a retinol

Known for its anti-aging benefits, retinol can help even out skin tone, too. “Retinol inhibits the activity of tyrosinase which helps to lighten the skin while also improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, which can help make skin look more even.”

Step 4: Consult a board-certified dermatologist to discuss cosmetic procedures

If you’re not getting the results you want from your skincare products, consider consulting a professional. “Consult with a board-certified dermatologist. Several cosmetic procedures can help like the Cosmelan Peel, Fraxel Laser, AlexTrivantage Laser, Clear + Brilliant, Chemical Peels, and more,” Dr. Green says.

Other Facial Skin Tone Treatments

Here are other things you can do to achieve an even skin tone on your face:

Natural treatments

Vitamin C serum is a great natural treatment option for uneven skin tone. “As a strong antioxidant ingredient, Vitamin C can combat the negative effects of harmful free radicals in the environment that contribute to the development of the signs of premature skin aging, including hyperpigmentation,” Dr. Green says. “Vitamin C also helps to inhibit melanin production in the skin, thus brightening overall skin complexion. Additionally, Vitamin C plays a role in the synthesis of collagen in the skin. By promoting skin cell regeneration and inducing the production of collagen, vitamin C improves both the texture and tone of the skin.”

Lifestyle Measures

The most important lifestyle measure you can take to even the skin tone on your face, Dr. Green says, is sun protection.

“Everyone should wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or above regularly because it is one of the best and easiest ways to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet radiation and prevent hyperpigmentation,” she says. “Pregnant women, in particular, should be diligent in applying sunscreen regularly. During pregnancy, it is common for patients to suffer from a skin condition known as melasma. Melasma often results due to hormonal fluctuations and presents itself as patches of skin that are darker than the patient’s natural skin tone. Sun exposure can worsen melasma and any hyperpigmentation so wearing sunscreen is especially important”

Medical Procedures

While you should always talk to your dermatologist about which procedures might be right for you, Dr. Green says chemical peels, laser treatments, and other procedures can be helpful when it comes to evening out skin tone. But as mentioned above, the wrong treatment can actually worsen hyperpigmentation—so make sure to have a thorough conversation beforehand.

How Can You Prevent an Uneven Skin Tone?

The very best thing you can do to prevent uneven skin tone? It probably won’t come as a surprise at this point, but you should apply sunscreen.

“The best thing you can do for your skin to prevent uneven skin tone from occurring or worsening is to apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or above daily and reapply every two hours,” Dr. Green says. “Sunscreen is great for protecting against hyperpigmentation that is a result of sun exposure. Excessive sun exposure will result in an increase in melanin production in the skin which ultimately manifests as hyperpigmentation.”

Key Takeaways

Long story short: Hyperpigmentation, otherwise known as uneven skin tone, is common—but there’s a lot you can do to make it less visible and protect your skin from further damage.
